Subject: Sorry, Tyroleans, Your Costumes Just Weren't Silly Enough
Post-war newsreel story about Austrians demonstrating at a peace conference in favor of having the southern Tyrol region returned to Austria. Tyroleans turned out for the demonstration in their traditional costumes, which are kind of fun to see. Also included is a story about the swearing in of a new chief justice of the Supreme Court. A fairly standard newsreel from the post-war period.
